Mail Call!

All of you know how much I love Mail Call.

Today the postman brought a gift from a blogging friend, Maria-Thérèse,
a very talented young lady who was celebrating her Blogoversary by having a give-a-way.

I love carousels and this arrived in my post today.
I can't begin to tell you how beautiful it is.
Scanning doesn't do Maria-Thérèse Andersson's work justice at all.

Be sure you visit with her.
She has turned her Abandoned Amusement Park series into a calendar!
Wonderful!

Next is a piece of mail art I made.
Mixed-media, paint, paper, stamps, tag, glue stick and loads of fun.



I'm keeping the original and I made lots of copies to use as mailing labels.
Be on the lookout!

Wishing you well and a JOY filled day!

Each one of these pieces of art are magnificent. I love the calendar,and this mail art is wonderful. The other day during a daydream a I drove down some country roads here. I often get lost, and love it because I find new things.

Well, I was thinking about how much I miss writing letters. I used to write all the time when we lived overseas. Mailart...a good and lovely way to send a letter.
